The State of Qatar, the Asian-African Legal Consultative Committee (AALCC), in co-operation with the Secretariat of the United Nations and Frere Cholmeley (Paris), organized the Conference on International Legal Issues Arising under the United Nations Decade of International Law in Doha, Qatar on 22-25 March 1994. Around 60 speakers and 200 participants from more than 40 nations expressed their views on the progressive development of international law and its codification with a view to States' actions in the future adhering to the principles of international law as enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations.;The subjects dealt with by the Conference had one thing in common: they were all topical issues and will remain thus throughout the United Nations Decade of International Law. The various themes were environmental law, the law of the sea, the settlement of disputes, humanitarian law, the Rio Conference, post-Rio and the new international economic order. This book contains the Conference proceedings and should be of interest to lawyers specializing in international law.
